The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and cardiovascular disorders in a large Japanese population, and to assess the efficacy of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in the treatment of OSA-associated arrhythmias. The study population comprised 1394 Japanese subjects (1086 men and 308 women)(More)
The phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) is known to be a negative regulator of legume root nodule formation. By screening Lotus japonicus seedlings for survival on an agar medium containing 70 microM ABA, we obtained mutants that not only showed increased root nodule number but also enhanced nitrogen fixation. The mutant was designated enhanced nitrogen(More)
OBJECTIVE The prevalence of complex sleep apnea syndrome (CompSAS) among Asian patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) has not yet been reported. Distinguishing CompSAS from pure OSAS is difficult using only diagnostic polysomnography (PSG). We examined the prevalence of CompSAS in Japanese patients with OSAS and the possibility to distinguish(More)

By screening Lotus japonicus seedlings for survival on an agar medium containing 70 μM ABA, we obtained mutants that not only showed increased root nodule number, but also enhanced nitrogen fixation.

BACKGROUND Recent studies suggest that treatment of heart failure (HF) could improve cardiac function and sleep apnea syndrome (SAS), but it is unknown how cardiac surgery may affect SAS in HF patients. Relationships between HF with valvular heart diseases and 2 types of SAS (obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea (CSA)) were examined. The(More)
BACKGROUND Percutaneous coronary interventions involving small coronary vessels represent a true challenge because of the increased risk of restenosis and adverse outcomes. We evaluated the 2-year clinical outcomes between single everolimus-eluting stents (EES) and paclitaxel-eluting stents (PES) in small coronary artery disease. METHODS From the data of(More)
